Bitcoin testing $5300, BNB spikes 12 %

The last 24 hours have been positive for much of the crypto market. BTC is now testing the $5.3k level, and Binance Coin (BNB) has also seen some significant gains. 

Total market cap / BTC dominance: 

Total market cap is just over $180.5 billion, the highest level it has seen in almost a week, after gaining $3 billion in the last 24 hours. BTC dominance is down to 51.8%, after some good gains for many of the larger altcoins.

Bitcoin (BTC) 

Bitcoin has recently broken the $5300 level on Bitfinex and CEX.io, and may be testing it soon on Gemini as well as Bittrex. Since the middle of November 2018, it has reached this price just two times, once just around 12 hours ago, before being rejected back down to around $5250, which is significantly higher than the last time around a week ago. If it holds this time, many have predicted $5500 next. 

Top 10

Binance Coin (BNB) is the best performer in the top 10, with gains of almost 12 percent, following an announcement about the upcoming launch of Binance Chain's mainnet. Ethereum (ETH) has also done well, gaining almost 5 percent. Litecoin (LTC) is up 4.2%.

Further down the top 20, Tezos (XTZ) and Augur (REP) have both seen double-digit price increases. XTZ is up 11.2%, while REP has increased by 17.4 percent.
